New Commercial Up!!! Tuesday, May 11 2010 

A couple of weeks ago I had the opportunity to work with Bamboo River Press and Montavilla Sewing Center on their new commercial. Actress Mercedes Rose was the lead and I was delighted to get to know her better. She is a riot!!!

Check out the spot….

Orange tile and fox fur Thursday, Apr 8 2010 

Here are the remaining looks from my shoot with Brandon Witzel. Miss Megan who is now modeling all over China was a really good sport for this last location as it was a covert little public restroom. I walked in and was afraid to touch anything and here was Megan leaning back against the walls, sitting on the floor, etc. Modeling is a hard job!!! 🙂

Special thanks to Kira Pinski for her outstanding hair styling and for supplying the fox fur! It added a certain crazy element and it made me smile!

Beauty En Pointe Sunday, Mar 28 2010 

There is a model in Portland that I have wanted to work with for a few years now. Her name is Megan and rumor had it that Mode International was shipping her off to China for fashion week and she would be gone a big chunk of time. I conversed with some creative peeps and we set up a shoot with her and photographer Brandon Witzel. I have been admiring his work and the softer feel of his images and thought he would be perfect for this shoot with Miss Megan.

He agreed and so amazing hair stylist Kira Pinski and I started dreaming up a shoot concept. We really wanted something to do with ballet so Megan got her pointe shoes, Kira rented a studio, and Megan got a designer dress from Sarah Seven and we were off.

Here are a few of the best images from the studio…

I went for a really simple beauty look. Soft and clean. I wanted her face to blend in and accent the rest of the scene, not dominate the shot.

The next look was more edgy and will be showcased later… 🙂 I love working with a great team!!!!

Advertising Campaign for Bishops Barbershops Wednesday, Feb 24 2010 

A few years ago I met a hair stylist that I think is simply divine. Her name is Julie Ruckman and she was working at Bishops Barbershop as a stylist.

Through our years of working together I was hired to do an ad campaign for Bishops in 2008. As the economy went down, they stopped doing ads for a while so I was excited when they started back up and I was hired for another year of ads.

I met with the Art Director and we brain stormed on photographers and they ended up hiring the outstanding Carl Evans. I knew we were in for great things this time around. 🙂

Bishops likes to use “real” people for their ads so they put out a call for people who were willing to come in and let the stylist do whatever they felt like to get an “original” do. There was some phenomenal hair there. Holly wanted to do 2 shots… a day look and a night look so we were booking it to get all 17 models dressed and changed twice, with both hair and makeup changes. The results have been really cool!!!

Here are a few of the ads so far…

New video for Amai Unmei Wednesday, Feb 17 2010 

My friend owns a boutique here in Portland called Amai Unmei. It is a high end, upscale store featuring posh coats and divine dresses. 🙂 She really does have amazing stuff! I love it so much that I’ve purchased a beautiful fuschia and orange silk coat, a brown dress, and 2 blouses. Did I mention I love her stuff??? 🙂

Recently, Allison contacted me asking me to do hair and makeup for her upcoming pre-fall advertisting reel. I jumped at it!

Check it out…

Sexy Nurd Tuesday, Feb 9 2010 

A few months ago I did a shoot with Scott James for stand up comedian AuGi Garred. The concept was FAR different from most of the things I have been doing lately. 😉

It involved AuGi stripping down to his underwear and me spraying him down with Pam cooking spray. It involved me grooming his back hair. It involved me transforming 2 models into 80’s throwbacks. All the while, not making a noise as there was a film screening next door and we got yelled at every time someone said something. 🙂

There were a ton of AuGi’s friends who showed up so it was a real party by the end. Good times! 🙂

Here are a few pics from the night…

I made the cover of a book!!! Sunday, Dec 27 2009 

Today was a lovely day. I log on to find a posting by a photographer friend of mine, Pete Springer, who had posted some great news. He had been chosen to be part of a collaboration in a book on Professional Commercial Photography. Not only was there an editorial on him, but many of his images were chosen, including 3 of mine. 🙂

What I found even more exciting is that one of our images from one of my favorite shoots was featured on the cover. See link!

There were some amazing images from this shoot. This is also where I met the amazing hair stylist Kira Pinski, and lovely clothing designer Holly Stalder.

Another Editorial… yay! :) Saturday, Dec 12 2009 

I had the wonderful opportunity to work with Jaime Ibarra, a fantastic photographer here in Portland, OR a while back. It was just a fun creative shoot or so I thought. He wrote me a month or so later letting me know that one of our images was chosen by Prime Magazine in China.

Jaime was chosen to be the subject of an editorial spread and they featured 10 of his images. Luckily, one of our collaborations made the cut. I was so excited! Another tear for me and an international one to boot! Yay! 🙂

Here is the image and layout….

We did a follow up project a month or so later. It was a clothing shoot for an Afghanistan clothing company. Kind of random how we ended up shooting it but I’m really excited to see the edited versions of Jaime’s masterpieces.

New Editorial work Thursday, Dec 10 2009 

My editorial work with Albertina Kerr (the print ads) are now out and about. They turned out fantastic thanks to Andy Batt-photographer, Joey Talatou – Stylist, Therese Geitler – producer, and myself on hair and makeup. Great team always makes a great end result. 🙂

These ads were for Albertina Kerr’s “Angel” program… celebrating individuals who help the agency with at risk kids and various programs. They do really good work there.

Ripped off again… Monday, Nov 23 2009 

The last few weeks have been an induction into the world of stolen images.

First of all, I was tipped off that some makeup artist had posted 4 of my images on his model mayhem profile, claiming credit for the makeup. Funny thing was, they were images I had had up for years prior to my web site redesign. I went to his page and commented on each picture and then reported each image to the MM moderators. The photographers I worked with all reported him as well. Ultimately, model mayhem deleted his profile. I was still stunned that 4 of 7 images were my work and that he was getting jobs from them.

The part I find most humorous is that they weren’t even my best work. My thoughts are if you are going to steal images, at least steal the good ones. 🙂

Then last week I received an email from a model letting me know that images from a shoot we did in Feb were in an Australian online magazine… used without the photographers permission and edited horribly. They were truly awful. I wasn’t sure I should laugh or cry and was actually grateful that I didn’t have a makeup credit.

The front cover is from our shoot as well as the back cover. Note the added bows… such a nice touch. 😉
